Speaking at the maiden edition of the ‘Ellembelle Business Expo’ organised under the theme ‘Harnessing Our Investment Opportunities for a Sustainable Job Creation in Ellembelle’ as the Special Guest of Honour, President Nana Akufo Addo noted: “I have had two separate meetings with the key figures involved from our side and on the side of Eni to try and find a common ground that will enable us to deal with this matter without litigation. It hasn’t happened so far, but I want to assure you that we will continue discussing it to find an amicable solution”.
He further noted this request that has been made by the Nzema-Manle Council sits well with him, and he is willing to do his best to make sure it happens.
The president’s comments and commitment came as a result of an appeal made earlier by Awulae Amihere Kpanyinli lIl, Paramount Chief and President of the East Nzema Traditional Council, during his address at the Business Expo. The Awulae appealed for the president to intervene and have the dispute between ENI Ghana and Springfield resolved amicably.
